I think bespoke engagement rings are something I could get on board with. Yes, they’re more expensive because they’re personalised, but they’re also more meaningful. Someone who loves you has gone out of his or her way to pick out even the smallest of details when designing your bespoke engagement ring –the ring that will forever symbolize and memorialize the day you two each declare you’re ‘it’ for one another. When you think about it, all actual engagement proposals are bespoke in nature because they are crafted by one partner specifically for the other partner. They’re heartfelt and sentimental; they’re momentous and beautiful; they’re the start of a lasting promise.
Diamonds are supposed to be forever, right? So, if the ring is forever, why not make it as heartfelt, sentimental, momentous, and beautiful as the proposal is, so that all that joy and love can last forever and sweep you back off your feet whenever you look down at your custom (bespoke) engagement ring?
Personalisation has been a trend and a norm since men and women starting monogramming their hankies back in the day. Now there are entire businesses and websites devoted to their claim that they can personalise anything, and they do mean anything. If someone is vain enough to want monogrammed bed sheets, pajamas, and even underwear, then why is it so outlandish to think that a person might want to either:
- Have a custom-designed bespoke engagement ring (especially considering that someone went to all the effort, thought, sentiment, and trouble to design and present you with a completely custom token of love and commitment), or
- Present a custom-designed bespoke engagement ring to the person with whom they desire to spend the rest of their life?
Ponder that while we circle back to this idea of proposals being the epitome of bespoke–personalised, customised, and just for…you. Do you know that Promposals are a thing now? An actual honest-to-goodness thing. Teenagers across the globe are setting up grand and elaborate musical numbers, public declarations, and confetti-filled-anythings just to ask someone to go to prom, and the kicker is, most of these prom-going pairs have already agreed to attend the event together, and the entire Promposal is pro forma!
Jewellers now have specialised services precisely for customers who want to design a custom bespoke engagement ring. And if you have a picture in your mind, but have little to no idea how to help someone else see that picture, then have no fear. ReveDiamonds.com has a particularly detailed and easy-to-use online design page. The service is organised in such a way that you can choose from hundreds of designs for every aspect of the ring’s design–everything from stone shape, gem, claw setting, style (cluster, art deco, victorian, etc…), band style, diamond setting, etc…and just like that, you’re designing the ring of your partner’s dreams.
So, ignore any of the so-called nay-sayers, and remember just how much devoted effort and adoration went into that ring and that moment. And never forget to love every bit of it.
